Yet again my year came & went and my scribblings, notes and plans for writing did too ! But thankfully I have the memories stored deep in my grey matter. Deciding it was time to finally put finger to keyboard, I’ve spent most of my day, trawling through photos, Facebook posts , pinterest and Instagram, so yes generally procrastinating once more.
So to put it bluntly or should I say sum it up in a nutshell, 2015 was as rollercoaster as any we’ve had in Spain. Looking on the highs & ups, La Rosilla-Lifestyle and Food has steadily and enjoyable grown. Guests and travellers have visited from all corners of the globe and we’ve shared tales, recipes & traditions, sat, cooked , ate and drank together and the ‘*Sobremesas’ have been wonderful🙂
We’ve explored and fallen more deeply in love with Andalucia, flora, fauna, fiestas & ferias. Our city of Malaga, is forever evolving into a destination of delights, museums, gastronomy, port and each time we visit we stumble over something new. We have a passion to share this with people who visit, and those who haven’t yet and we can perhaps tempt them by social media.
Somethings have appeared more in my timelines then others, guests, Paella & breads, all passions of mine. I’ll share a few with you ..
I have to make some changes in 2016, foremostly I need to become gluten free😦 Doctor’s orders !. This will not be easy for me, and no doubt I’ll have some falling off the wagon moments, but I’m determined and looking forward to the challenge of creating bakes & dishes to suit. I’ll keep you posted.
The winter so far has been especially kind, with many alfresco lunches and evenings with friends and family spent by the fire pit under the stars. Almond blossom is already blooming over the mountains and wild flowers peeping through, heads to the sun.
Strawberries are in the markets, artichokes and broad beans too, all signs of a Happy New Year and we’re ready for it too.
